When in doubt wear black
Sure, wearing black jeans with a black polo-shirt like sweater and white sneakers styled with pushed up sleeves à la Isaac Mizrahi or a black suit à la Karl Lagerfeld or Kate Moss to a fashion event is a no-fail recipe. The same applies for a LBD with a statement bag and/or statement pumps (see inspiration photos below). But when you are the gal who likes to stick out of the crowd or when you are in the mood for something more daring, create a fashionable outfit with one statement piece and one trendy item.When in doubt wear black. #agelesstyle Click To Tweet You can't be wrong with a LBD. #styletip Click To Tweet

Fall/winter fashion week
When it is still too cold to go to the event without outerwear, opt for a statement coat like in the last photo of this post. Enjoy the show and remember: Some of the pieces presented are only meant as exaggerations of the trend to be shown off by the models. Even they would not wear those pieces on the street!A fashion show is a show after all! #fashionweek Click To Tweet
